Favorite Albums Of 2009

Calling this a "Best Of" list sounds pretentious.
1Coheed and Cambria
Neverender DVD


As a huge Coheed & Cambria fan, words cannot express how happy I was when I first heard about Neverender. Playing each one of their concept albums straight through on four consecutive nights, Coheed & Cambria were allowing their fans to enjoy their favorite albums the way they were meant to be heard. I own the "Children of the Fence Edition" and could not be happier with the contents that are included. This is without the most comprehensive collection ever released by a contemporary artist.
2Various Artists (Indie)
Dark Was The Night


What an amazing compilation album. I was shocked when I first saw the stellar lineup of artists that contributed to the record. There really isn't a bad track on either of the two discs.
3Silversun Pickups
Swoon


Their sophomore record definitely picks up (no pun intended) where Carnavas left off as the band continues their indie-alternative/shoegaze quest. I enjoy pretty much all of the tracks on the album.
4Kid Cudi
Man on the Moon: The End of Day


My favorite hip hop record this year, seeing the Cleveland rapper bringing something fresh to the table is a nice relief.
5Mastodon
Crack the Skye


Mastodon delivered another phenomenal record this year. Nice to see that this band is making a very strong case for the legitimacy of metal music.
6Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion


Named after the local outdoor music venue, Animal Collective are always pushing the boundries and making tremendous music.
7Alice In Chains
Black Gives Way to Blue


The triumphant return of this grunge band show that they can still make relevant music after the passing of former lead singer Layne Staley
8Porcupine Tree
The Incident


I always expect great music from this band, and they deliver once more.
9John Mayer
Battle Studies


Never was a fan of John Mayer. I liked some of his older stuff, but never delved into his music too much. However, his latest album was a really good listen.
10The Dead Weather
Horehound


Another Jack White side project, this time featuring a member of Queens of the Stoneage, bassist of The Raconteurs, as well as the lead singer of The Kills. I loved this album the first time I listened to it.
